TL;DR: It is concluded that people try to construct a mental model of the premises but, if there is a believable conclusion consistent with the first model they produce, then they fail to construct alternative models.

TL;DR: This paper investigated the effect of verbal instructions on the belief bias effect in syllogistic reasoning and found that belief bias is most clearly marked by a tendency for subjects to accept invalid conclusions which are a priori believable.
Abstract: The study is concerned with the question of whether robust biases in reasoning can be reduced or eliminated by verbal instruction in principles of reasoning. Three experiments are reported in which the effect of instructions upon the belief bias effect in syllogistic reasoning is investigated. Belief bias is most clearly marked by a tendency for subjects to accept invalid conclusions which are a priori believable. Experiment 1 attempted to replicate and extend an experiment reported by Newstead, Pollard, Evans and Allen (1992). In contrast with their experiment, it was found that belief bias was maintained despite the use of augmented instructions which emphasised the principle of logical necessity. Experiment 2 provided an exact replication of the augmented instructions condition of Newstead et al., including the presence of problems with belief-neutral conclusions. Once again, significant effects of conclusion believability were found. A third experiment examined the use of elaborated instructi...

TL;DR: Investigating the variability in appetite and body weight when participants engaged in a supervised and monitored exercise programme demonstrated that even when exercise energy expenditure is high, a healthy diet is still required for weight loss to occur in many people.
Abstract: Objective: In the majority of exercise intervention studies, the aggregate reported weight loss is often small. The efficacy of exercise as a weight loss tool remains in question. The aim of the present study was to investigate the variability in appetite and body weight when participants engaged in a supervised and monitored exercise programme. ---------- Design: Fifty-eight obese men and women (BMI = 31·8 ± 4·5 kg/m2) were prescribed exercise to expend approximately 2092 kJ (500 kcal) per session, five times a week at an intensity of 70 % maximum heart rate for 12 weeks under supervised conditions in the research unit. Body weight and composition, total daily energy intake and various health markers were measured at weeks 0, 4, 8 and 12. ---------- Results: Mean reduction in body weight (3·2 ± 1·98 kg) was significant (P < 0·001); however, there was large individual variability (−14·7 to +2·7 kg). This large variability could be largely attributed to the differences in energy intake over the 12-week intervention. Those participants who failed to lose meaningful weight increased their food intake and reduced intake of fruits and vegetables. ---------- Conclusion: These data have demonstrated that even when exercise energy expenditure is high, a healthy diet is still required for weight loss to occur in many people.

TL;DR: Work-life balance is more about a mind-set that refuses to be dominated by a work temporality and is determined to create "me time" rather than e.g. simply choosing a four day week or a part-time job as mentioned in this paper.
Abstract: This article poses a challenge to the orthodox binary, conceptualization of work–life balance only made possible by relying on the widespread ‘clock time’ worldview, which understands employment practices in terms of the basic time = money equation. In particular, it is the balance metaphor which relies on a quantification of both work and life in order to make sense and can therefore be seen to be based on an understanding of time as a measurable and value-able unit. This article seeks to begin the exercise of examining the concept of work–life balance through a broader concept of the temporal dimension than simply limited quantitative notions. Two temporal themes are reported from a study which identified employees who had customized their working pattern to suit the various and multi-dimensional facets of their lifestyles and thereby successfully improved their work–life balance. Participants in this study demonstrated that an improved work–life balance is more about a mind-set that refuses to be dominated by a work temporality and is determined to create ‘me time’ rather than e.g. simply choosing a four day week or a part-time job. It is argued that the notion of work–life balance is more usefully conceptualized within a broader notion of ‘livingscapes’ which contain both elements of work and life and that as researchers, our challenge must be to reflect the complexity of this weave within our analyses of individuals’ work–life balance.

TL;DR: In this article, the root length and tolerance index of Agrostis capillaris L. (A. tenuis Sibth) were measured using a standard rooting test on plants originating from a copper contaminated site (Parys Mountain) and a lead-contaminated site (Goginan).
Abstract: Heavy-metal tolerance was investigated in Agrostis capillaris L. (A. tenuis Sibth.) using a standard rooting test on plants originating from a copper-contaminated site (Parys Mountain) and a lead-contaminated site (Goginan). Six F1 families obtained by interpopulation hybridization and F2 and backcross generations derived from one of them were screened. Estimates of the genetic and environmental components of phenotypic correlation were obtained in terms of both root length and tolerance index. Results are discussed in relation to problems of interpretation of evidence for multiple- or co-tolerance based on tolerance indices and phenotypic correlations.
